Happy Cooking:Make Every Meal Count by Giada De Laurentiis


Reviewed by Martha Artyomenko

About the book:

Giada De Laurentiis, one of the most recognizable faces on the Food Network lineup, invites readers to get to know her as never before. The celebrity chef is back with nearly 200 new recipes and helpful advice on everything from hosting a potluck or open house to what to pack along for lunch every day. Drawing on the time-saving tips and healthy eating strategies that keep her functioning at the highest possible level in her roles as working mom, restaurateur, and tv personality, she has assembled a year-round roadmap to vibrant good health and delicious eating. Readers will be inspired to try new ingredients, new wellness practices, and create a wholesome balance between peak nutrition – and the occasional decadent indulgence. Featuring her New Year’s cleanse, homemade Christmas gifts, and ideas for every holiday, special occasion, and casual weekend in between, this is Giada’s 365-approach to cooking up a happy life.

My Review:

A good cookbook is not unlike a good novel. In this novel, we have illustrations, descriptions to touch your senses, and explanations that will make you think you are eating healthy. =) Giada has the taste of Italian food, from snacks to desserts, with healthier options, without sacrificing the taste. This cookbook will fit into a lifestyle that likes a more whole food diet, but also has a love for real, tasty food as well.
